Containerized Supply

ISO Containers are designed with highly engineered thermal insulation and a rugged, durable construction that ensures low-pressure, low-temperature liquid has a safe journey when traveling long distances for extended periods of time. With versatility in mind, LNG ISO Containers are intermodal, optimized specifically for transporting Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) worldwide by rail, sea, and road.

These reliable, low-maintenance containers come in a variety of working pressures, carry up to 43,000lbs (19,500kg) (gross) and are currently offered in either 20 or 40-foot lengths. All containers comply with important codes and standards including ASME/DOT, RID, IMDG, ADR, ISO, and TPED.

Benefits of Containerized LNG:

  • No transfer of LNG from ship to storage etc
  • Handeling of containers is standard practice in container ports
  • Uses existing infrastructure

 40’ ISO LNG Tank Container:

  • 4 m3 LNG at 82% filling rate
  • Up to 80 days unattended holding time
  • Dry quick couplings for liquid, vapor and safety valves with integrated break-away couplings
  • Pneumatic ESD valves for liquid and vapor
  • IMDG container for sea, rail and road transport
  • Class approved type C tank according to IGC code
  • Suitable for stacking 6 high in container stacks
  • Fully Ex-proof; no electric installation on the container

 Insulation:

  • Vacuum insulation between inner and outer tank
  • The inner tank is wrapped in multi-layer super-insulation reflector foil to prevent heat ingress into the inner tank
  • The pipe connections and the supports of the inner tanks are designed for frequent and fast cool-down and filling cycles
  • Integrated pipe coil in the inner tank for LNG cooling with liquid N2
